I was one wiped out Grandma Honey last night. We have had SO much fun with the
twins the past 4 days their parents have been out of town.....but last night I was longing for
a major night's sleep and it was only 7pm!
Right about then my sister Heidi happened to stop over for a visit. I asked if she would
mind reading the twins a bedtime story. Not only did she jump right up and happily do
that, but she listened to them read, got excited about all their little things...like their advent
calendars, and the gift their school teacher gave them…she oood and awwd about the
comfy soft bed they sleep in at our house, and helped them brush their teeth.
At one point as I was sitting on the couch totally relaxing, Heidi came in and asked
where I keep my small ziploc bags. I didn’t even ask what she wanted them for, nor did I
care “They’re in the 3rd drawer under the cutting board.” Then after she got them all
tucked into bed, she even offered to help with prayers but I heard one of them say,
“Grandma does that with us.”
I wish I would have thought to take pictures of it all for my blog! They so love Aunt
Heidi. And at that given moment she was angel relief to me.
Then this morning as I was packing up the twinsies to go home, I noticed on the top of
both their overnight bags, there were 2 little ziploc bags with their tooth brushes inside.
Heidi even thought of that! To Heidi I would like to say:
"Charity is accepting someone who has let us down; or resisting the impulse to become offended when someone doesn't handle something the way we might have hoped...The best and most clear indicator that we are progressing spiritually and coming unto Christ is the way we treat other people..." -Marvin J.
